Sickle Cell Awareness Month/Camp Jumoke’s 25th Anniversary Celebration
September 15, 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT
Join the Sickle Cell Association of Ontario, Camp Jumoke and TAIBU Community Health Centre on Sunday September 15th, 2019 from 12:00 PM until 5:00 PM at Nathan Phillips Square. On that day, we will not only celebrate Sickle Cell Awareness Month, but also 25 years of Camp Jumoke’s service in the community sending close to 800 children living with Sickle Cell Disease to summer camp.
Hosted this year by comedian Jay Martin, this awareness and celebration event features a children’s village with face painting, bouncy castle and more; vendors selling everything from t-shirts to smoothies, speeches from local politicians, doctors, community organizers, Sickle Cell Warriors and more. There will also be an onsite health village where individuals can speak with organizations about their health concerns, live entertainment and a DJ.
Come for the awareness…stay for the fun!
